New Sishya Vows During Innersearch

This innersearch was particular unique with over half of the participants being active students of Gurudeva’s Himalayan Academy Master Course. Four participants advance on the path with vows taken.

Here is Ashish Chitnis, long time devotee who took his two addition Vrata Sishya vows, making him a full member of Saiva Siddhanta Church and accepted sishya of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.

Find out more about the steps on this path to initiation at this link.

Ravi and Sheela Rahavendran took their Arul Sishya Vows, having completed Level Three of the Master Course. They will changing to a Saivite last name in the days ahead.

Our members honor the sishya with garlands.

With Sivakatirswami who presided over the ceremony.

All our Kauai members got to listen to the vows spoken outloud and then signed as witnesses.

    I feel blessed to have been there in actual reality but it is almost as good to revisit in virtual reality. This website is another one of the 1008 (and still counting) gifts from the Guru. Aum Namasivaya!
